Welcome to boost your business with space-based data!

Welcome to an online Learning Café on Monday, May 25th at 12.30 (Finnish time).

The new digital space economy is an internationally growing field of research and development. The possibilities offered by large quantities of data collected from satellites bring interesting new opportunities both for the private and the public sector. We have an opportunity to develop new knowledge as well as new products and services based on satellite data that strengthens industry’s competitiveness.

Welcome to an online Learning Café which consists of a webinar and a virtual workshop.

In the webinar, experts talk about the potential of space based data in business and the related funding opportunities. Case companies introduce their own ways to leverage space data in forestry and agriculture, logistics and positioning, maintenance, and geoinformatics.

In the workshop, we will be divided into groups by sector-of-interest and brainstorm together how space-based data can be useful for business in that field, including current and potential future solutions.
